Offshore survival training


Survivex Offshore Survival Training will give you an insight into working and living offshore while also equipping you with the vital life saving skills required to survive a controlled helicopter ditching or rig/vessel evacuation.

Our training uses high fidelity simulators to replicate the actual events in as much detail as possible while ensuring a safe and controlled training environment. 

Our training pools are equipped with environmental effects simulators including wind, waves, rain, thunder and lightening. We are the only training provider in the UK to feature an indoor lifeboat with safelaunch davit system.

We have two survival system METS 30 Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET) which feature internal layouts exactly replicating


the helicopters used in the North Sea fleet (Eurocopter Superpuma 225, Sikorsky S-92 and Augustawestland AW139).

Realistic HUET training is vital because trainees are taught to escape a ditched helicopter using touch as primary means of orientation. 

We train offshore helicopter pilots for the largest North Sea helicopter operators as well as pilots and crew of the UK Search And Rescue (SAR) force and Air Ambulance crew from all over the UK. 

They trust us with their life, who will you trust? Survivex - Train with the real experts.
